Beschreibung

There is ongoing public debate about the ethical responsibilities raised by climate change. Should countries find common agreement on mitigation plans, or take unilateral action in the hope of shaming others to follow suit? What is the responsibility of individuals, if their government’s responses to climate change are inadequate? Who is most to blame for climate change, and what practical implications might this have? Can advanced technologies assist in avoiding climate catastrophe, or are they distractions from ordinary mitigation? In the time remaining to avoid dangerous climate change, what is the role of ethics?

These seminars will explore advanced topics in climate justice and the ethics of geoengineering. The course will be divided into two main topics. First, we will explore recent contributions to climate justice which adopt a ‘non-ideal’ framing. These approaches begin from more pessimistic assumptions about climate policy than standard accounts of climate justice, enriching and critically evaluating the role and the limits of ethical analysis in promoting just climate outcomes. Second, we will explore debates about geoengineering the climate, in relation to the two sets of technologies, namely: Solar Radiation Management, and Carbon Dioxide Removal. These technologies have been praised by some as insurance policies against climate breakdown, and as means to buy time to decarbonise our economies. But others claim they are hubristic follies or risky gambles which distract from the mitigation challenge.

 

The seminars will provide ample scope for discussion and reflection on these and other issues raised by climate change. The aim will be to provide a thorough grounding in cutting-edge research into climate ethics, which aims to be of high practical and policy relevance.
